  • Kieran Tierney: This title is for our Lisbon legends

    Kieran Tierney: This title is for our Lisbon legends

    By: Tony Connelly on 07 May, 2019 16:31

  • KIERAN Tierney described the feeling of clinching eight-in-a-row for Celtic as unbelievable, and dedicated the title to club legends and Lisbon Lions heroes Billy McNeill and Stevie Chalmers who both sadly passed away in the past fortnight.

    After missing a couple of weeks due to injury, Tierney marked his return to action at Pittodrie by helping Celtic defeat Aberdeen 3-0 and win the Premiership title again.

    The Celtic full-back has endured a frustrating second half of the season with injury, but he showed his unwavering commitment to pull on the Hoops and help his side battle their way to victory and clinch an eighth successive league title.

    “It was my first game back and it was tough but I gave it my all,” he said in an exclusive interview with the Celtic View. “It was sore playing with a double hernia, but I wanted to be out there to play my part.”

    “It’s been really tough not playing as many minutes as I’d like. I want to play every minute of every game, so missing some has been frustrating. The earlier part of the season was good for me on a personal level, though.

    “I played virtually every minute of the start of the season, which is the busiest period of the season for us. It’s a long season so it’s easy to forget what happened at the start. I’m just glad I could help win the title.”

    Tierney, still only 21-years-old, now has eight major domestic honours with the club he has always supported. Adding to Celtic’s illustrious history has always been a dream come true for him and he dedicated the title to both the fans and those who have come before him,  

    “The fans were incredible at Pittodrie,” he said. “They always give us amazing support and they’re there through the good times and the bad times. A day like this gives us the chance to pay them back for the support they’ve shown this season.

    “It’s always amazing to win a league title for Celtic and to do it in a week when we lost two legends of this club makes it all the more special. This title is for them as well as the fans.”
